According to "Employment market. Work in Russia" research service, most Russians believe that the most respectable profession today is doctor and volunteer.
Obviously, the choice of such professions is based on the coronavirus pandemic. The study was conducted among over 18,000 people in 21 regions of the Russian Federation.
The top list of most disrespectful and shameful (in the opinion of young Russians) professions has remained unchanged - it is headed by janitors, followed by taxi drivers, salesmen and security guards of private security companies.
Earlier, young people already answered sociologists, which professions of their parents they would consider most shameful. Forty-two of the polled said that they were no shameful professions at all. The rest were distributed among the above-mentioned salesmen, taxi drivers, housing and communal services employees, builders and factory workers.
Another curious poll dedicated to shameful and respectable professions was conducted on social media. More than 10,000 people took part in the poll to decide which profession they would consider "the main refuge for losers."
